Two New York City Officers Acquitted of Rape

Two New York City police officers were acquitted on Thursday of the most serious charges in the rape of a drunken woman who had been helped into her apartment by the officers while on patrol.

The verdict provides some measure of vindication for the officers, Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata, and brings to an end a criminal case that drew outrage across the city when the officers were indicted in 2009.

Still, the jury convicted both officers of official misconduct for entering her apartment, but found them not guilty of all other charges, including burglary and falsifying business records.

Judge Finds Jared L. Loughner, Accused in Tucson Shooting, Unfit to Stand Trial

Jared L. Loughner, accused in the Jan. 8 shooting spree that seriously injured Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and left six others dead, was ruled incompetent to stand trial by Federal Judge Larry A. Burns on Wednesday.

Before the ruling, Mr. Loughner was dragged screaming from the courtroom in Tucson after disrupting the hearing; he watched the rest of the proceedings on a monitor in a holding cell. The court heard testimony from two expert witnesses that Mr. Loughner suffered from schizophrenia.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn Resigns From I.M.F.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn resigned Wednesday as head of the
International Monetary Fund after explosive allegations that
he had sexually attacked a cleaning lady in a midtown
Manhattan hotel room.

His resignation comes just days after he was taken off an Air
France plane at Kennedy International Airport and arrested in
connection with the alleged attack.

Mr. Strauss-Kahn, a former French finance minister, had been
expected to declare his candidacy for the French presidency
soon. He was seen as the figure most likely to oust President
Nicolas Sarkozy.

In issuing his resignation Wednesday, Mr. Strauss-Kahn said,
"I want to say that I deny with the greatest possible
firmness all all of the allegations that have been made
against me."

U.S. Unveils $2 Billion Aid Package for Egypt

Few game-changing proposals are emerging to defuse soaring
tensions in the Middle East as a busy week of diplomacy
unfolds with President Obama's address to the region and his
meeting with Israel's prime minister.

Against the backdrop of Middle East uprisings that have
intensified animus toward Israel and growing momentum for
global recognition of a Palestinian state, American and
Israeli officials are struggling to balance national security
interests against the need to adapt to a transformative
movement in the Arab world.

The White House unveiled a $2 billion multiyear economic aid
package for Egypt, which officials say would largely shift
existing funds. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel
prepared to arrive in Washington with a familiar package that
he hoped would shift the burden of restarting the peace
process from Israel to the Palestinians.

New York State Investigates Banks' Role in Fiscal Crisis

Eric T. Schneiderman, the New York attorney general, has
requested information and documents in recent weeks from
three major Wall Street banks about their mortgage securities
operations during the credit boom, indicating the existence
of a new investigation into practices that contributed to
billions in mortgage losses.

Officials in Mr. Schneiderman's office have also requested
meetings with representatives from Bank of America, Goldman
Sachs and Morgan Stanley, according to people briefed on the
matter who were not authorized to speak publicly. The inquiry
appears to be quite broad, with the attorney general's
requests for information covering many aspects of the banks'
loan pooling operations. They bundled thousands of home loans
into securities that were then sold to investors such as
pension funds, mutual funds and insurance companies.

Nasdaq and ICE Drop Bid for NYSE

Nasdaq OMX and IntercontinentalExchange announced on Monday
they were dropping their bid for NYSE Euronext, after
antitrust regulators said the deal would not gain the
necessary approvals.

Nasdaq and ICE spent weeks trying to court NYSE. In April,
the two exchanges made an $11.3 billion takeover offer for
the owner of the Big Board, sweetening a $10 billion deal put
forth by Deutsche Börse weeks before.

But NYSE remained committed to the tie-up with the owner of
the Frankfurt exchange, twice rejecting the offer from Nasdaq
and ICE. The management of NYSE said, in part, that it
worried a deal with NYSE and ICE would not clear regulatory
hurdles.

He was accused of a sex attack on a maid at a Times Square

U.S. Braced for Fights With Pakistanis in Bin Laden Raid, Officials Say

President Obama insisted that the assault force hunting down
Osama bin Laden last week be large enough to fight its way
out of Pakistan if confronted by hostile local police
officers and troops, senior administration and military
officials said Monday.

In revealing additional details about planning for the
mission, senior officials also said that two teams of
specialists were on standby: One to bury Bin Laden if he was
killed, and a second composed of lawyers, interrogators and
translators in case he was captured alive. That team was set
to meet aboard a Navy ship, mostly likely the aircraft
carrier Carl Vinson in the North Arabian Sea.

Mr. Obama's decision to increase the size of the force sent
into Pakistan shows that he was willing to risk a military
confrontation with a close ally in order to capture or kill
the leader of Al Qaeda.

In Interview, Syrian Official Says Government Has Upper Hand Over Revolt

The Syrian government has gained the upper hand over a
seven-week uprising against the rule of President Bashar
al-Assad, a senior official declared Monday, in the clearest
sign yet that the leadership believes its crackdown will
crush protests that have begun to falter in the face of
hundreds of deaths and mass arrests.

The remarks by Bouthaina Shaaban, an adviser to Mr. Assad who
often serves as an official spokeswoman, suggested that a
government accustomed to retrenching in the face of crises is
prepared to weather international condemnation and sanctions.
Her confidence came in stark contrast to just two weeks ago,
when the government appeared to stagger before the breadth
and resilience of protests in dozens of towns and cities.

"I hope we are witnessing the end of the story," she said in
an hourlong interview, during which a reporter was allowed
into Syria for only a few hours. "I think now we've passed
the most dangerous moment. I hope so, I think so."

U.S. Economy Added 244,000 Jobs in April; Unemployment Rate Rises to 9.0%

The United States economy added 244,000 jobs in April, the
Department of Labor said on Friday, as the unemployment rate
rose to 9 percent from 8.8 percent in March.

As has been the case for several months, all of the increase
came from private employers, which added 268,000 jobs, the
report said.

April's numbers exceeded the forecasts of analysts, who had
expected a gain of 185,000 jobs over all, with an increase in
private payrolls of 200,000. The gain for March was revised
to 221,000 from a previously reported 216,000.

The monthly jobs report is a crucial snapshot of the economy
as it tries to move from recovery to expansion, and the April
figures covered a period when several indicators pointed to
signs of weakness.

Data From Raid Links Bin Laden to Newer Terror Plots

After reviewing computer files and documents seized at the
compound where Osama bin Laden was killed, American
intelligence analysts have concluded that the chief of Al
Qaeda played a direct role for years in plotting terror
attacks from his hide-out in Abbottabad, Pakistan, United
States officials said Thursday.

With Bin Laden's whereabouts and activities a mystery in
recent years, many intelligence analysts and terror experts
had concluded that he had been relegated to an inspirational
figure with little role in current and future Qaeda
operations.

A rushed examination of the trove of materials from the
compound in Pakistan prompted Obama administration officials
on Thursday to issue a warning that Al Qaeda last year had
considered attacks on American railroads.

New York Times/CBS Poll Finds Rise in Obama's Poll Numbers After Bin Laden Raid

Support for President Obama has risen sharply following the
killing of Osama bin Laden by American military forces in
Pakistan, with a majority now approving of his overall job
performance, as well as his handling of foreign policy, the
war in Afghanistan and the threat of terrorism, according to
the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

The glow of national pride seemed to rise above partisan
politics, as support for the president rose significantly
among both Republicans and independents. In all, 57 percent
said they now approved of the president's job performance, up
from 46 percent last month.

But euphoria was tempered by a sense of foreboding: more than
six in 10 Americans said that killing Bin Laden was likely to
increase the threat of terrorism against the United States in
the short term. A large majority also said that the Qaeda
leader's death did not make them feel any safer. Just 16
percent said they personally felt more safe now.
